now to explain how gabriel become an werewolf. he was bitten by prince velkan in his werewolf form during their battle upon a racing stage coach making its way through a dark forest heading for dracula's castle. also during all that, gabriel also managed to shoot the werewolf a couple of times with silver bullets. later on, once the vehicle crashed dramatically and tossing it's occupants, anna found out that her brother died in human form. blah blah blah, anna gets captured. than as frankenstien's monster, carl, and gabriel are walking about the alleys of a city near a stream not far off from the river, his companions noticed that he's injured from the way he keeps rubbing his chest near a shoulder. forgot which side. anyways, the monster notices and in great horror, that gabriel had a huge bite mark to which he said was a werewolf bite. carl and the monster were worried of his transformation.
later on, after they managed to rescue anna from the vampire ball and then frankenstein's monster getting captured by dracula, as the trio were in the water at the gate that lead to a bay where the ship was taking off with the monster, gabriel yelled to the monster that he vowed to rescue him. but when carl questioned him on how and that it was fetile to pursue, gabriel got angry and grabbed him by the collar of his robes. raised him up and rammed him against the gate in the water. he had a fierce expression, his eyes glowing a faint, bright green yellow of a werewolf. he held the friar there tight, but once he sees the horrors on carl's face and comes to this senses, than he lets the man go. he leans against the gate and writhes in sudden pain. growls like a werewolf and then the notion of that first step fades.
much later on, and i know that i'm taking a big leap forward in the plot here to where carl, anna and gabriel have reached the entrance to dracula's castle. seeing as that the door was so tall and it was nearly impossible to enter by foot and/or climbing the walls, gabriel knows what he must do. grabs carl and anna by the back of their coat's collars and leaps about the rough ledges of the entrance to reach the gap at the top of the doorway. leaps through the gap and lands on his feet perfectly onto the porch of the doorway/entrance hall.
after some searching of the castle, they find where the monster is being kept, gabriel tries to bend the bars of the door between but can't. and has to rescue monster later. and now! to the great battle between dracula and gabriel, plus skipping much of the plot and events inbetween.
***i'll pause here to allow you to absorb the information, ask me questions, and there is a few things i need to mention that i didn't.***

Madness, as you know, is like gravity...all it takes is a little push.
also note, that since the order/organization is comprised of many different religions, there must obviously be a couple of people there that aren't of the same nationality as the cardinal jinette, carl, and gabriel. note, they can have accents and the like. like a jewish rabby (sp?), chinese monk, etc. etc.
too much to explain about dracula's role in the movie. so i'll just give you a rundown on their powers.
dracula - immune to the touch of silver and crucifixes (burns hand but heals easily), healing factor, transform into demonic bat form, fangs grow and eyes glow when about to attack/suck blood, can walk on walls, great agility (like vampires in "interview with the vampire"), can hear living creatures/people's heartbeats/pulse and determine their aura/character, special heat vision in the dark (kind of like x-ray vision, but only the human you can see skeleton a bit and their body heat are flame colors), hurt by sunlight but don't die
with the normal vampires and brides - they can only transform into bat/demonic forms, healing factor, can get hurt/killed with silver/religious symbols/holy water/stakes/etc, grow fangs, great agility, sharp senses, can hear life forces/pulses, heat vision, hurt by sunlight
